Black Mt. So. Summit Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A nice, family hike to the highest mountain and some of the best views in the Lake George area. Black Mountain is the highest peak with a trail in the Lake George area. It crowns the eastern shore of the lake at its
halfway point.

There are two trails to its summit, one from the shore of the lake, requiring a boat, and the other one from Pike Brook Road, which is described here. This one is longer but climbs less vertically."

"Black Mountain is the highest peak in the southeastern AdirondackÔÇôLake George region. It lies a little farther from the bustling heart of Lake George, so hikers seeking more solitude in the eastern Adirondacks may find this an excellent choice. By summiting from the north and descending along the southern slope, you will traverse a wide variety of environs and maximize the number of panoramic views.

The parking area off Pike Brook Road is sufficient for roughly a dozen cars conscientiously parked. The trailhead and trail register are on the western edge of the pulloff. Timber rattlesnakes are known to occupy the shores of Lake George, so be cautious when stepping over logs."
